I started in packaging, within a few months I moved into a operator position. At the job, we magnetized the magnets and cut them into strips for the customer using a foot pedal, while we coiled the rolls and taped them by hand.
I did final assembly on circuit boards, potting (a chemical like tar applied to a board for weatherproofing), I was one of four people chosen to do complete assembly on a weapons grade computer.
When I walked into the building, the General Manager told me they were looking for a man. His wife happened to be there and said it can't hurt to give her a chance. I was given the opportunity to prove myself, he said if you can sell a car this week you have a job. A man walked up looking at cars and the boss says here is your chance kid. I took the guy for a test drive and 15 minutes later he walked out the door in his new car. I opened the store every morning and took over the management position a year later. I did the advertising for the lot and moved inventory so that what was there seemed like it had just arrived, I introduced bring a friend get a bonus to the lot which increased profits because it was a military town.
I worked in sales, moved inventory to appear as new material , processed new inventory and priced items to move.
